    lol that teacher would be fired immediately and they would self report the incident to DHR if it was a halfway reputable daycare.

    There aren't really woes. Controlling a feral 2 year bobcat....I mean toddler in a 2' x 5' airplane row is definitely a woe. Those flights were rough, but gotten a lot better. Hopefully we watch Despicable Me 3 a on repeat.

    I'll think of GFA when the lobster fisherman walk up to our house from the beach to sell us fresh lobster for $4 each. They used to be $3....but that damn inflation.

    I mean....that's kinda fucked up. A teacher shouldn't do that.

    It's really stressing me out though. I'm in constant anxiety over him behaving at school. I'm hoping we can get past it quickly, especially since our beautiful health care system doesn't cover any treatments.

    It's tough right now, but hopefully will get through it soon. I try to keep it in perspective b/c I know others probably have it harder

    Vomit #5 this morning but we made it to the bathroom in time. He tried to hold it back and got some acid in his nose...seems to be the worst part.

    We're now watching cartoons and he seems pretty tired and weak. Feel bad for the lil guy

    best trip i ever went on with my kids was a long weekend in Chattanooga where we got room service and watched movies at night. your boy is a tad too young to really enjoy it but once he hits like 3 it will be fun as shit for him. kids love hotels.

    Travel expenses/ease was one reason we stopped at 1. Many other higher issues, but the ease of having 1 and doing a lot of travel was something we talked about.

    My mom is the only family who can watch our son. Unfortunately it's an inverse relationship. Every year he gets older and easier, she gets older and more difficult on her. We've recently resorted to taking some solo trips with friends (Me El Salvador her Bahamas/Scotland) so we can get some true vacation downtime. She wants us to go to the Seychelles for her 40th this year, but IDK if that's something my mom can swing

    :idk: Right now I have "unlimited vacation". I think I'll probably take 7 weeks off this year. I'm a billable employee with a target utilization rate. I'm way over it so I just take more vacations. Billed 55 hours the last 3 weeks so when I go on Vacation the week after thanksgiving it's almost like it doesn't count against me. We're merging with another bigger company and apparently going to have a only 4 weeks, 7 sick days, 8 holidays and 3 floating holidays. We'll see how it works out....I'll probably have more leeway if I'm still highly utilized and billing >> 40. Or I'll just take some quiet vacation.

    We do some light CC churning for points to make flights more manageable. But that might only be 1 trip a year.

    I have two boys, 8 and 6. They are competitive with each other to the point of detriment. I’ve just started giving them some time on the Xbox because it’s unavoidable these days. My 8 yo is leaps and bounds ahead of my 6 yo with video games because two years is a lot at this age.

    They were just playing The Show 23 and the older one was ahead by 3 in the bottom of the ninth. Bases loaded, Acuna at bat…and the younger one pulls a rabbit out of his ass and goes yard for the walk off grand slam.

    My 8 year old might need therapy after this. His reaction was, uh, not great.

    My 6 year old is absolutely obsessed with The Show and we can get him to do literally anything if we reward with 20 minutes on the Switch. We have been giving him an hour on the weekends if he gets certain behavior points at school and we recently received an email from the teacher praising his behavior. All the kid wants to do is hit dingers with Acuna on the easiest possible difficulty where the computer is basically doing everything for him.

    The show is 9.99 right now. May have to get for 6 year old. He loves the 99 cent Korean baseball game I downloaded for him once. It was cool since I could basically recreate his little league team in it

    9 year old just asked me for a ps4 or an Xbox for Christmas
    He has a switch he literally never plays with
    Only time he plays video games is at other people's houses
    I'm not all about spending money on something he either won't play with or will only play with when certain other kids are around just so he can say he has it

    our routine is my son gets to play it on the couch while my daugther watches a show. so all the switch does is replace some of the screentime he was already getting. I keep it in a different room charging when it's not allowed so he can't just go grab it whenever. It's definitely something we are monitoring and withholding, but his desire to play is only increasing.

    I want to take it to my mom's for the long holiday. mainly so I could play Smash and/or Mario kart with my brother and his wife but probably not going to because he will bug the shit out of me asking to play it and a good 5 day cleanse is probably needed.

    I'll probably do the docking thing. It also annoys me that a new one is coming out soon. I may just get a few wireless snes controllers and let him cut his teeth on that this year since he's only 4
